This study investigated the repeated-sprint ability (RSA) physiological responses to a standardized, high-intensity, intermittent running test (HIT), maximal oxygen uptake (VO(2) (max)) and oxygen uptake (VO(2)) kinetics in male soccer players (professional (N = 12) and amateur (N = 11)) of different playing standards. The relationships between each of these factors and RSA performance were determined. Mean RSA time (RSA(mean)) and RSA decrement were related to the physiological responses to…

Relationship between Repeated Sprint Ability and Aerobic Fitness in College Volleyball Players
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrated that high VO 2max as well as VT has an important contribution to performance during repeated-sprint efforts and suggest that training practices for the development of aerobic components may improve also RSA.
Determinant factors of repeat sprint sequences in young soccer players.
TLDR
The results suggest that the soccer player's lower body strength (V1-load, jumping and sprinting) explains a large part of the performance in the first sequences, whereas the aerobic capacity, estimated through YYIRT-1, becomes more important to performance as the number of sprints is increases.
Relationships Between Repeated Sprint Ability, Mechanical Parameters, and Blood Metabolites in Professional Soccer Players
TLDR
The high correlations found between mechanical (speed and CMJ height losses) and metabolic (lactate and ammonia) measures of fatigue highlight the utility and validity of using CMJ to monitor training load and quantify objectively neuromuscular fatigue during RSA.
REPEATED SPRINT ABILITY AND RECOVERY PERIOD : COMPARISON OF TRAINED AND UNTRAINED INDIVIDUALS 1
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of training both in repeated sprint ability (RSA) and during the recovery after sprint. Soccer players playing in regional amateur league
Indexes of physical capacity and repeated sprint ability of young soccer players
TLDR
It was concluded that no cor-relation exists between AC and LAC capacities obtained in the laboratory setting and velocity and fatigue measures from RSA testing, which should be taken into account when testing young soccer players.
VO2 kinetics and performance in soccer players after intense training and inactivity.
TLDR
Inactivity slows VO(2) kinetics in association with a reduction of muscle oxidative capacity and repeated high-intensity running performance and intensified training of already well-trained athletes can improve mechanical efficiency and repeated sprint performance.
Physiological Responses of General vs. Specific Aerobic Endurance Exercises in Soccer
TLDR
The use of HTE appears as an effective alternative for fitness coaches to develop aerobic endurance in soccer players and VO2 and [La] were higher during HTE than during the 15s/15s when matched with duration.
Validity of a repeated-sprint ability test in young soccer players
Indexes of physical capacity and repeated sprint ability of young soccer players
Repeated sprint ability (RSA) is thought to be an important skill for team sports. However, there is no study that correlates aerobic capacity (AC) and lactic anaerobic capacity (LAC) with RSA in
Relationship Between Repeated Sprint Ability, Aerobic Capacity, Intermittent Endurance, and Heart Rate Recovery in Youth Soccer Players.
TLDR
In LAF, RSA was strongly correlated with locomotor factors (e.g., vTST; VT) in both laboratory and field tests, and the multiple regression revealed that the LAF vLabTest explained 44.9, 40.0, and 13.5% of the variance in RSAbest, RSAmean, and Sdec, respectively.

Determinants of repeated-sprint ability in well-trained team-sport athletes and endurance-trained athletes.
TLDR
The results suggest that factors in addition to peak .VO(2) are likely to be important for RSA.
The relationship between maximal oxygen uptake and repeated sprint performance indices in field hockey and soccer players.
TLDR
Maximal oxygen uptake was not correlated with the fastest 40 m sprint time but was moderately correlated with total sprint time, and it remains possible that a high level of aerobic fitness enhances other aspects of match play in games like soccer and hockey.
Effects of resistance training on H+ regulation, buffer capacity, and repeated sprints.
TLDR
High-repetition, short-rest, resistance training does not improve muscle buffer capacity in active females, but it does reduce H accumulation during high-intensity exercise (approximately 160% VO2peak).
Validity of a repeated-sprint test for football.
TLDR
The RSSA test showed adequate construct validity but only RSSA mean time showed sufficient reliability to detect large training-induced changes but not small important differences.
Match performance of high-standard soccer players with special reference to development of fatigue
TLDR
Top-class soccer players performed more high-intensity running during a game and were better at the Yo-Yo test than moderate professional players; fatigue occurred towards the end of matches as well as temporarily during the game, independently of competitive standard and of team position; defenders covered a shorter distance in high- intensity running than players in other playing positions.
Physiological responses to maximal intermittent exercise: differences between endurance-trained runners and games players.
TLDR
The greater decrement in performance for the games players may be related to higher glycolytic rates as reflected by higher lactate concentrations and to their lower oxygen uptake during the course of the 10 sprints.

TLDR
Compared with CLUB rowers, the shorter time constant response and greater economy observed in ELITE rowers may suggest advantageous adjustment of oxidative processes from rest to work.
